Sweden places order with Saab for two GlobalEye aircraft

Swedish defence company Saab announced on 30 June that it has signed a contract with and received an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for the GlobalEye Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft.

The order which is valued at approximately SEK 7.3 billion ($714 million) includes two GlobalEye aircraft with deliveries planned during 2027, with the contract period from 2022-2027.

The contract also includes options that enable FMV to order up to two additional GlobalEye.

“GlobalEye will provide Sweden with world-class airborne early warning and control capability. Saab’s most important mission is to keep people and societies safe, and I am proud that GlobalEye will further strengthen the Swedish Armed Forces’ capability,” says Saab’s President and CEO Micael Johansson.

Saab’s GlobalEye features the Erieye Extended Range radar, which has a range of more than 550 kilometres, as well as a suite of advanced sensors and a command and control system integrated into the Global 6000 aircraft.
